Andrew E. Sloan, MD, FACS, Professor and Vice Chair of Neurosurgery at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in neurosurgery and education.
Amassing more than two decades of professional experience, Dr. Sloan is a respected pioneer of immunotherapy and neurosurgery. Since 2014, he has been serving as a professor and the vice chair of the department of neurological surgery at Case Western Reserve University, where he reports to the chairman on clinical and research activities. Alongside this role, he has served University Hospitals in a multitude of capacities, including as the director of stereotactic radiosurgery in the Case Medical Center, the Peter D. Cristal Chair of Neurosurgery in the Center for Translational Neuroscience, and the director of the Brain Tumor and Neuro-oncology Center in the Seidman Cancer Center.
Prior to these illustrious positions, Dr. Sloan was the director of stereotactic radiosurgery at the Moffitt Cancer Center, an associate professor at Wayne State University, the director of the brain tumor program at Karmanos Cancer Institute, and the director of the Brain Tumor and Neuro-oncology Center at Wayne State University. Dr. Sloan commenced his career in 1997 and has since blossomed exponentially in the realm of neurosurgery. The developer of laser interstitial thermal therapy, he also works with the NASA Air Force to instigate the simulation of brain tumor surgeries, which he hopes to provide the same type of training for brain surgeons as flight simulations provides for prospective pilots.
To prepare for his celebrated career, Dr. Sloan pursued a formal education at Yale University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in biology in 1985. He subsequently attended Harvard Medical School, earning a Doctor of Medicine in 1990. After obtaining his medical degree, he completed a residency in neurosurgery at the University of California, Los Angeles, becoming the chief resident in neurosurgery by 1997. Thereafter, he became a fellow in neurosurgery at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center from 1997 to 1998.
In an effort to remain aware of changes in the industry, Dr. Sloan maintains affiliation with several organizations, including the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, where he has been a member since 1995. Likewise, he was a former member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons from 1990 to 2013 and former president of the Ohio State Neurosurgical Society from 2014 to 2015. He remains associates with the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons. Notably, he is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
In recognition of his exceptional contributions to neurosurgery and education, Dr. Sloan has accrued several accolades throughout his impressive career. He was the recipient of the Neuro-oncology Award from the Congress of Neurological Surgery in 2016, the Clinical Research Career Development Award from the American Society of Clinical Oncology in 2000, and the Clinician Investigator Award from the American Brain Tumor Association in 1999.
Looking toward the future, Dr. Sloan intends to continue being a leader in clinical trials for malignant brain tumors and cementing his legacy as a dedicated and versatile figure in the field. He recently received a grant to continue his research in chemoprotection and immune remodeling after hematopoietic progenitor cell gene therapy for glioblastoma. The anticipated benefit of this collaboration will be both improved understanding of the interaction of GBM with the immune system as well as the development of new approaches to treating this disease.
